On My Mind: 7-16-17

Gus, Theo, and Ruby - At work I recently heard of a sibset consisting of eldest brother Gus, and then Theo, and a little sister named Ruby. It's so unusual (especially in my small southern town) to hear such stylish names that I was pretty floored when I heard it.

Augustine - Another name sighting from work - a little boy was calling for his friend all across the arcade - his name was Augustine.

Libuše - I've really been into Czech names here lately, and this one is one of my favorites. It comes from the Czech lib - which means "love". In legend, Libuše, also sometimes calledLubuše, Libussa, or Lubossa, was the name of a Princess and the founder of Prague.

Names for Wild Boys

Tenzing Norgay
These are names for boys who are adventurous, love exploring the woods and making up their own games. They seek to solve the great mysteries of the world (and don't mind a lady or two giving them advice). They are dauntless, brave, amazing.
Jobs for these boys: Diver, storm chaser, sailor, zookeeper, mountaineer.
